Connecting the Berlin, Baltic Sea and Nordic interactive media industries - with a focus on games, startups and digital media
The aim of this initiative is to connect the Berlin Games and Interactive Media industries with the Baltic Sea and Nordic countries. Focusing on the initiation of business relations, participants will benefit from a wide network of companies, institutions and talent incubators.
Based on the success of Berlin meets Poland, media.net berlinbrandenburg started its new initiative BerlinBalticNordic.net in January 2016. We are building up on the previous project by extending the existing network to the Nordic and Baltic Sea countries, this time also including digital entertainment areas such as animation and VFX.
The focus will be on the initiation of business relations which are supposed to lead to sustainable cooperation. We intend to give participating companies the chance to directly get in touch with the markets of the countries as well as with the companies there, including organizers of the relevant business conferences and trade fairs, multipliers, publishers, developers, associations, investors and incubators. We also plan to connect our participants to universities and cultural institutions.
Fields of action:
Market Research and Development
Industry Event Participation
Knowledge Exchange and Transfer
The platform will be both analogue and digital, events in the partner countries will be complemented and accompanied by activities and information online. The website hub BerlinBalticNordic.net is currently in development.
